Standard Test Method for Analysis of Aqueous Leachates from Nuclear Waste Materials Using Inductively Coupled Plasma-Atomic Emission Spectrometry


1.1 This test method is applicable to the determination of low concentration and trace elements in aqueous leachate solutions produced by the leaching of nuclear waste materials.

1.2 The nuclear waste material may be a simulated (nonradioactive) solid waste form or an actual solid radioactive waste material.

1.3 The leachate may be deionized water or any natural or simulated leachate solution containing less than 1% total dissolved solids.

1.4 The analysis must be conducted with an inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectrometer.

1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
